Stay updated with local COVID-19 resources including resources for individuals, food assistance info & more.
At Grand County Rural Health Network, we believe everyone has the right to healthcare and to understand how to access that care. We have the resources and capabilities to help everyone living in our community access care.
We continue to face unprecedented times with both the COVID-19 pandemic and wildfires deeply impacting our neighbors, families, and local businesses.
Grand County has many organizations and agencies that understand the unpredictability of life’s circumstances and are working hard to keep our community strong. These organizations are the foundation that build well-being for Grand County individuals and families.
Whether it’s making sure our neighbors have basic needs met or connecting residents to important services, we are ensuring this support system is ready and able to keep our community strong.
Join us in saying farewell and thank you to Kim Long!
When Kim started as Health Coverage Guide 7 years ago, the uninsured rate in Grand County was approximately 27% for adults and 22% for children, which amounted to one fifth of Grand County residents. Throughout Kim’s tenure, the uninsured rate dropped as low as 9%!
Kim was an invaluable team member, an asset to our community, and leaves behind big shoes to fill. Look for another post this week about temporary Health Coverage Guide services for our county as we transition to a new Health Coverage Guide.

We believe that everyone in our community should have what they need to thrive and be healthy. We advocate for health equity and know that health is more than health care. We know that different people need different things to be as healthy as possible. Societal constructs, such as policy and practices, get in the way of health and negatively impact individuals and communities, including people of color – our children, friends, family, and neighbors. We believe in racial justice and overcoming the systemic injustices that so drastically impact health due to race.
We are committed to health equity and justice, to working with partners and individuals to build equitable systems in our community and state. We stand in solidarity with the millions of people across the country who experience racial injustice and the trauma caused by generations of oppression. We commit to listening to people experiencing oppression and working to end oppression so that each individual, and our community, can thrive.
